9 Superheroes You Didn’t Know Were Caribbean


Fade, Dominican Republic

Carlos Quinones joined the force syndicate with his sister Flashback in order to help them assimilate after moving to the U.S. from Dominica. He knew from early on that he was gay. While in the force syndicate, he fell in love with Tech-9, one of the founding members of  Force Syndicate, though Tech-9 had no idea of Carlos’ true feelings. His gang-banger lifestyle left a strained relationship between him and his father. On the night of the Big Bang event, he was one of many gang members to attend. Unlike most of those present, however, he was changed by the event into a super-powered being. Stretched over a three-second time span, he would remain incorporeal and almost unseen forever. Luckily, his sister Flashback‘s power anchored him in whichever time she was in.  He lost the man he loved eventually and was blackmailed due to his sexuality by teammate Masquerade. It’s unknown if he is still “in the closet” to this day.
